Default P1 usa 2012



Greenville, NC: February 14, 2012 – The one-design P1 SuperStock USA Championship is set for a second season of exciting and highly competitive offshore powerboat racing with five events on its 2012 race schedule.

For the second consecutive year, P1 SuperStock USA teams will race in Detroit, MI and Morehead City, NC with the addition of three new venues: St. Cloud, FL, Biloxi, MS and Pittsburgh, PA.

“We were approached by a huge number of venues who are interested in bringing P1 SuperStock USA to their city,” said Martin Sanborn, P1 Director of North American Operations. “The amount of interest this series has generated throughout the U.S. is very encouraging and will be instrumental in bringing the Championship to a regional level by 2013, reverting back to the APBA regional format from the late 1990’s.”

The season starts on March 30 - April 1 in St. Cloud, FL at “Spring Fling” presented by the Rotary Club of St. Cloud. This kick-off event will bring powerboat racing back to St. Cloud for the first time in three years. St. Cloud was traditionally the season opener for APBA offshore powerboat racing starting in 1983 when teams would race East Lake Toho as an exhibition race at the beginning of each season.

The second event of the season is scheduled for April 26 - 29 in Biloxi, MS for “Smokin’ the Sound.” P1 SuperStock USA joined the Offshore Super Series for “Smokin the Sound” in 2011 as an exhibition race but this year’s race will count towards teams’ overall championship score.

After a two-month break in the schedule, P1 SuperStock USA teams will travel to Pittsburgh, PA for the “Pittsburgh Three Rivers Regatta” on June 30 - July 1. This year will be the 35th running of the event and an estimated crowd of 600,000 spectators is expected.

Two weeks later, P1 SuperStock USA teams will return to Detroit, MI July 13 - 15 for the “2012 Detroit APBA Gold Cup” presented by the Detroit River Regatta Association and the Detroit Yacht Club. Last year, P1 SuperStock USA 2011 National Champion crew, JD Byrider, picked up their first win of the season in Detroit and hoisted the coveted Garwood trophy.

The final stop of the 2012 season is in Morehead City, NC for the 7th Annual Crystal Coast Grand Prix and the P1 SuperStock USA National Championship. Morehead City provided some of the closest and most exciting race action in 2011.

“We are excited to bring the P1 SuperStock USA National Championship to Morehead City, NC this year,” said Sanborn. “The competition was outstanding in Morehead City last year and the venue provides one of the best viewing areas of any race site. We consider Morehead City to be our home event since it’s only 90 miles from our P1 USA headquarters in Greenville, NC.”

Look for P1 SuperStock USA at the Miami International Boat Show this weekend where the P1-28SS Panther will be on display at the Marriot Biscayne Bay Hotel and Marina. Demo rides will be available for potential customers with serious interest in the boat.

The Powerboat P1 SuperStock USA Championship series features a global, one-design powerboat with the same engine and propeller, leveling the playing field for all competitors. The Driver’s make the difference, not the amount of their investment. The series is sanctioned by the Union Internationale Motonautica (UIM) and the American Powerboat Association (APBA) to create a genuine competitive championship series at the regional, national, continental and world championship level.
